Description

Foundation Maps, previously called Philanthropy In/Sight®, is an interactive mapping tool designed for grantmakers, grantseekers, advisors, policymakers, researchers, academics—virtually anyone interested in the impact of philanthropy around the world today. Foundation Maps can be used to gather intelligence to craft compelling grant proposals and to reveal patterns of giving and funding relationships. It combines the Foundation Center's rich data on grantmakers and their grants with Google maps to tell the story of philanthropy. Plus, you can overlay grant data with your choice of over 150 demographic, socio-economic, and other data sets to create compelling visual portraits showing where philanthropy has made an impact and where opportunities exist to fill critical needs.

COS Pivot

Alternative Titles
COS Funding Opportunities, COS Scholar Universe, COS Expertise
Community of Science (COS)
Description

COS Pivot is a directory of researchers and research funding opportunities that combines two comprehensive, editorially maintained databases:  the COS Funding Opportunities database of over 400,000 funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion, and the COS Scholar Universe database of 3 million profiles of scholars worldwide.  Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to an organization (such as University of Michigan) and matches them to revelant current funding opportunities.  This allows U-M users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside U-M.  Conversely, a search for a given scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.

Note:  Access to personalized features requires personal registration and login.  COS Pivot replaces the former COS Expertise service.

After creating a personal Chronicle.com account, you can sign up for the Chronicle’s newsletters which provide daily and/or weekly updates of academic news of particular interest to you and which arrive via email. If you have previously created a personal Chronicle.com account, and have used your personal U-M email address (ending in “@umich.edu”) to do so, your account should automatically give you unrestricted access to the entire Chronicle site.

Please note, however, that your U-M personal Chronicle.com account does not include access to recent issues of the Chronicle iPad Edition via the new Chronicle iPad App, which requires a Premium Chronicle account that comes with a print subscription or can be purchased separately.
